         The Golden Fleece

      1626 - Divided into three parts, under which are discovered the errors of Religion, the Vices and Decayes of the Kingdome and lastly the wayes to get Wealth and top restore Trading so much complayned of, transported from Cambrioll Colchos, out of the Southernmost part of the Iland commonly called Newfoundland. First edition. Folding map in facsimile. Small quarto. Contemporary speckled calf, stamped and ruled in blind, gilt morocco spine label, raised bands. Bookplate on front pastedown, some ink notes on front endpapers. Wormhole in lower outer margin throughout, most pronounced in first twenty-five leaves. Early manuscript marginalia (in English and Latin) and underlining. A good copy. [xxviii], 149, [1], 105, [1], 96pp. London: Printed for Francis Williams, This copy with the bookplate of Thomas Hay (1710-87), eighth Earl of Kinnoull. Hay was a classical scholar, a member of Parliament, and in 1746 was made a lord of trade and plantations. ?He took a prominent part in the efforts to improve the condition of Nova Scotia? (DNB). The anonymous author, William Vaughan (1575 or 1577-1641), was a Welsh poet and colonial promoter who saw Newfoundland, with its rich fisheries, as a source of revenue for England and of employment for its people. This work, in the form of a literary fantasy, is meant to extol the riches and gains to be had in Newfoundland. ?Cambrioll,? mentioned in the title here, was the name Vaughan gave to his settlement on the island. Vaughan actually spent time in Newfoundland from 1622 to 1624, an experience which greatly adds to the accuracy of this promotional work, and despite the fantastical nature of the text much early information on Newfoundland is to be gleaned here. ?This work is one of the earliest contributions to English literature from America, and was intended to advertise Vaughan's colony. It is a queer fantasy in prose and verse, in which a succession of historical characters present complaints against the evils of the age in the Court of Apollo, and finally find the Golden Fleece in Newfoundland? (Baer). The text contains brief references to Lord Baltimore (a partner in Vaughan's Newfoundland enterprise) and Captaine Wynne, hence the Maryland interest. Vaughan also criticizes the social use of tobacco, bringing his work to the attention of Arents. The map of Newfoundland, here present in expert facsimile, was drawn by John Mason for Vaughan's exceedingly rare Cambrensium Caroleia, published in 1625. According to the Church catalogue, quoting Rich, the Mason map is not always found with The Golden Fleece - as in the Toronto Public Library copy, which is in a similar contemporary binding but lacks the map. A significant early and interesting New World promotional, with a Maryland association.

         HAKLUYTUS POSTUMUS OR PURCHAS HIS PILGRIMES. CONTAYNING A HISTORY OF THE WORLD, IN SEA VOYAGES & LANDE-TRAUELLS, BY ENGLISHMEN & OTHERS.IN FIVE BOOKS.

      London: William Stansby for Henrie Fetherstone, 1625-1626. - Five volumes. Numerous engraved maps and plates, many of which are folding. Extra engraved titlepage. For a detailed discussion of collations, see Wilberforce Eames' exhaustive treatment in Sabin. Folio. 19th-century dark green morocco, bound by F. Bedford, spines and turn-ins ornately gilt, boards gilt rules, all edges painted red and gilt. Later bookplates on front pastedowns. Several maps trimmed close, one with very slightly loss at fore-edge, a few leaves in Vol. III remargined. With blank R4 in Vol. I, lacking initial blanks in Vols. III and IV. Very light offsetting from plates, occasional faint foxing. A fine and handsome set. The second great collection of English voyages, expanding upon and greatly adding to the work of Hakluyt, whose manuscripts Purchas took over after Hakluyt's death. Purchas collects over twelve hundred separate narratives of explorations in every part of the world. Many of the accounts relate to the New World, especially Virginia, and one of the engraved maps is Smith's famous "Map of Virginia." Besides the Smith Virginia map, Purchas also includes two other maps of the greatest importance for North American cartography. The first of these is the "Briggs" map of North America, generally considered the first map to show California as an island. The Briggs map is also the first to note New Mexico by that name, and the first to name the Hudson River and Hudson Bay. The other notable American map is William Alexander's depiction of the Northeast, showing the coast from Massachusetts north to Newfoundland. As Burden notes, this is the first map to record many place names and is a "map of great importance." Purchas began work on his massive collection in 1611, and published various editions of a short collection, with the similar title of "Purchas His Pilgrimage," over the next ten years. That publication, however, was merely a precursor to the present work, an entirely different book and arguably the greatest collection of travels and voyages ever published. The first two volumes are mainly devoted to travels in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. The third volume largely treats northern explorations and America. The fourth volume is almost entirely devoted to America. The fifth volume, PILGRIMAGE, is a supplement to all of the preceding parts, and properly completes a set of Purchas' PILGRIMES. A foundation work for any collection of travels and voyages. The Streeter set, which seems to have been heavily restored, sold to a private collector for $2000 in 1966. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 625/173.

The last 16 leaves comprise a table of sines. An important work on sun dials, with attractive woodcut diagrams of dials by Jodocus Hondius "In 1593 Fale published his only known book, Horologiographia: the Art of Dialling, in which he described the design and construction of various dials to tell the time by day or night. His declared aim was to instruct students of mathematics and assist architects, surveyors, sailors, and others. A prefatory letter was addressed to his kinsman Thomas Osborne, who had invented and made one of the dials mentioned. This took the form of a semicircle carrying a sighting arm on which was set a small compass. The mathematician Augustus De Morgan considered Fale's table of sines to be probably the earliest such table to be printed in England. Later editions of the book appeared in 1626 [as offered here] and 1652. In 1604 Fale had a licence from the university to practise physic, but nothing is known of his later life or the circumstances of his death". (ODNB) [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Dioscorides, as he was known, wrote on the health and healing benefits of aloes and opioids. This work is one of the most important ancient medical texts because it formed the basis for future herbal treatises. It is still considered the prime historical source for information on medicines used by ancient Greeks and Romans and records the names of 600 plants, many of which are obsolete or extinct. (Nutton, p.177) There also are inclusions of wine making and the health benefits of wine consuming, grapes, raisins, and mandrake. This book was the first Greek medical text to be translated into Arabic, because of this, it made long-lasting and important impacts on Arabic medicine.

         Mappe monde ou description generale du Globe Terrestre, suivant

      Artist: L Isle de /Covens & Mortier Guillaume ( - 1726) Paris; issued in: Paris; date: ca 1720 1626 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 13 x 21; - description: Map shows the world in two hemisphere; -vita of the artist: Guillaume De L isle (1626- 1757) Paris, was a French cartographer known for his popular and accurate maps of Europe and the newly explored Americas and Africa. De L isle was admitted into the French Académie Royale des Sciences, an institution financed by the French state. After that date, he signed his maps with the title of ?Géographe de l?Académie? Five years later, he moved to the Quai de l?Horloge in Paris, a true publishing hub where his business prospered. De L isle?s ascension through the ranks culminated in 1718 when he received the title of Premier Géographe du Roi. His new office consisted in teaching geography to the Dauphin, King Louis XIV?s son, a task for which he received a salary. De L sle?s reputation as a man of science probably helped .This supports the claim of the historian Mary Sponberg Pedley, who says ?once authority was established, a geographer?s name might retain enough value to support two or three generations of mapmakers? In De L isle?s case, it could be said that his accomplishments surpassed his father?s. Up to that point, he had drawn maps not only of European countries, such as Italy, Spain, Germany, Great Britain, Poland, and regions such as the Duchy of Burgundy, but he had also contributed to the empire?s claims to recently explored continents of Africa and the Americas.Like many cartographers of these days, De L isle did not travel with the explorers and elaborated the maps mostly in his office. The quality of his maps depended on a solid network that would provide him first-hand information. Given the family?s reputation and his own, De L isle had access to fairly recent accounts of travellers who were coming back from the New World, which gave him an advantage over his competitors. Being a member of the Académie, he was also aware of recent discoveries, especially in astronomy and measurement. When he could not confirm the accuracy of his source, he would indicate it clearly on his maps. For instance, his Carte de la Louisiane shows a river that the baron of Lahontan claimed he discovered, but no one else could validate it, so Delisle warned the viewer that its actual existence was in doubt. De L isle 's search for exactitude and intellectual honesty entangled him in a legal dispute in 1700 with Jean-Baptiste Nolin, a fellow cartographer. Noticing Nolin had used details that were considered original from his Map of the World, De L isle dragged Nolin in court to prove his plagiarism. In the end, Delisle managed to convince the jury of scientists that Nolin only knew the old methods of cartography and therefore that he had stolen the information from his manuscript. Nolin's maps were confiscated and he was forced to pay the court costs.The scientificity of the work produced by the De L isle family contrasted with the workshop of Sanson. While Sanson knowingly published outdated facts and mistakes, De L isle strived to present up-to-date knowledge. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

         Emblemata, (.) partim moralia, partim etiam civilia. Cum latiori eorundem ejusdem auctoris interpretatione. Accedunt et alia quaedam poemata in aliis poëma : tum suorum libris non contenta.

      Leyde, Elzévir 1626 - petit in-4, [6] ff. n. ch. (titre-frontispice gravé, dédicace aux magistrats de Gouda, au lecteur, poème liminaire et portrait gravé de l'auteur), 235 pp., avec 74 gravures sur cuivre dans le texte par Crispin de Passe le Jeune, maroquin havane, dos à nerfs cloisonné et fleuronné, encadrement de triple filet doré sur les plats, double filet dor sur les coupes, tranches dorées, large dentelle intérieure (rel. du XIXe s.). Deuxième édition (la première est à l'adresse de Gouda, et parut en 1618), reproduisant exactement la précédente et reprenant les memes cuivres. Il y eut encore une troisième édition en 1648 à l'adresse d'Amsterdam. Roger Paultre, dans son excellente étude (cf. infra) consacre une longue notice, très détaillée, justifiée par le caractère canonique que ce recueil d'emblèmes acquit tout au long du XVIIe siècle. Né et mort à Gouda, le jurisconsulte Floris van Schoonhoven (1594-1648), issu d'une lignée de bourgmestres de la ville, est essentiellement connu par ce recueil latin, qui fut ensuite traduit en néerlandais (1626 et 1638).

         Histoire universelle du sieur d'Aubigné, comprise en trois tomes. Seconde édition, augmentée de notables histoires entières, et de plusieurs additions & corrections faites par le mesme auteur. Dediée à la postérité.

      S.l. 1626 - 3 tomes en un volume in-folio, 20 pp., 518 colonnes, un feuillet vierge ; colonnes 519-1190 ; 744 colonnes, [20] ff. n. ch. (tables des matières, une pour les tomes I & II, une pour le tome III), veau fauve granité, dos à nerfs cloisonné et fleuronné, pièce de titre, tranches mouchetées de rouge (rel. de la fin du XVIIe s). Accroc en coiffe inférieure, qqs mouillures au premiers feuillets, manques à la page de titre qui a été restaurée et doublée Seconde édition, avec la variante sans adresse (l'autre présente l'adresse d'Amsterdam, héritiers de Commelin), appréciable pour ses corrections et améliorations, qui aurait été imprimée, selon Picot, à Heidelberg où était établie l'officine de Hierosme Commelin, et non à Genève comme on l'a souvent répété. Tel quel, l'ouvrage est à la fois une "histoire universelle" dans le genre très ambitieux de l'époque (même si les événements rapportés sont surtout ceux de l'Europe occidentale), et, à partir de 1562, des annales où l'expérience personnelle et les préjugés calvinistes de l'auteur apportent quantité d'éclairages intéressants (notamment sur ses campagnes en Poitou). Malgré son engagement très fort du côté protestant, d'Aubigné a réussi à atteindre une certaine impartialité, exposant dans toute leur extension les thèses catholiques comme les huguenotes, et ne se laissant pas aller à la haine contre les Guise, Henri III ou Catherine de Médicis, comme il le fera dans ses écrits polémiques. Haag I, 178-80 (V). SHF, Hauser, 1480. Brunet I, 545. Tchemerzine-Scheler I, 165-66. Bon exemplaire.

Hirsch IV, 332: Arents coll. 84, 89a: "... a popular compendium of information relating to the 'scientific' methods of preparing and using tobacco 'for all the ailments of human body'. The cuts... illustrate the native methods of cultivating, gathering, curing and preparing tobacco.". Bound in the rear, unpaginated, is a long (3 pp.) verse in Dutch by Ioost (or Joost) van Ravelingen on the merits and curses "Tabacks Lof en Lastering" of tabacco, and dedicated to Neander. Van Ravelingen is better known as editor of Dodoens' Kruydeboeck. Like in the first edition, pages 55, 69, 167, 249, 253 wrongly numbered as 45, 65, 147, 253, 257. This may suggest that only the title page (dated 1626) is in "2nd edition". Plate on "p. 253" = 249) bound after, instead of before p. 251., the same with page "257" (=253). Edges with a few repairs, using later vellum, some small wormholes, spots and wrinkles to the front and back cover. First text page with old owner's inscription and repair at the top margin. Although the flyleaves are old, they are not contemporary. The last few leaves with a small brownish spot, otherwise the interior is clean, without worming or other defects. Overall a very good, copy. Arents, p. 30; BM(NH) Cat., p. 1404 (noted, but not in BM(NH) library); Pritzel, 6624. Not in Stafleu & Cowan.
